Gerald Dawavendewa (Hopi & Cherokee)
A mother and daughter wrapped in blankets for the cool morning, sing their prayers toward the rising sun. Butterflies gather about them flying upward to clouds as the last midnight stars greet the sun. The young girl carries her toy, a grandmother doll wrapped in a cradle board and has her hair wrapped in a child’s hair whorl symbolizing butterfly wings. Behind the women are ancient butterfly spirits gathered among flowers and clouds and above dragonflies with butterflies merge with the upper clouds.
